    I know this may be typical or maybe not when the team your pulling for loses. As a long time fan of sports I have seen a lot of what could be very questionable. With that…I personally think the NBA has a little explaining to do.
    The Dallas Mavericks did not beat the Miami Heat. As much as people want to not talk about it or maybe they do, true sports people know what I am talking about. Yes, you may be angry at the way Lebron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers. But you can’t deny the Miami Heat as a team. Be angry at these young guys who worked out a deal between the three of them without the assistance from the NBA/GM, be angry at the way Miami put on a show for these guys, be angry at the predictions. But for sports gods sake don’t jeopardize the integrity of the game. I personally think that not only was the NBA not ready for something like this, the NBA did not think the three or two could coexist much less run through two of the top five teams in Boston and Chicago. The way that this Miami Heat team came together after injuries, finding that right chemistry. There is not an NBA team built to withstand this team in a seven game series. Shame on you NBA. You have the money, Mark Cuban spent years developing one of the highest payrolls. It just so happen that these guys took a pay cut, because they knew they could compete right now. So please, stop using Labron James to cover up the calculated robbery of the NBA championship from the Miami Heat. These guys are young and yes, it is actually great for the NBA. It is kind of like politics, you can’t always think that what worked then will work for today’s generation. I could go on and on, but I would like to stop here and get your thoughts. Thanks for the opportunity to submit my comment.
